METAIRIE, La. — Rafael Bush wanted the No. 36 when he was signed by the New Orleans Saints this past weekend.

Fans in the greater New Orleans metropolitan area wanted him to take the No. 25.

After all, many already had No. 25 Saints jerseys with the name Bush on the back, even if they were for Reggie and not Rafael.

“I guess if you want to put it in that perspective, I guess so,” Bush said. “There’s a lot of die-hard Saints fans who were very good fans of Reggie Bush before he got traded and whatnot. Now that they’ve got the opportunity to bring their jerseys back out, I think they are saving money.”

Never bought an RB jersey (I'm the only person I know with a Lance Moore) but I gotta admit that's pretty cool of that dude.

Welcome, R. Bush 2.0

Do the players get a cut from jersey sales? Is this guy giving up money from these sales?

I think all the old jerseys were Reebox and the new ones are Nike. So I'm guessing that would clear up any confusion for the retailers/players involved/etc.

Would have been funny if he were getting a cut out of Bush's pocket though.

That's funny, he will have a lot of fans from the start that way. Let's hope the number doesn't have any gri-gri associated with it, since it ended up with alot fan discontent before Bush #1 left.
